Best bars in Kernville

“A very popular place among the locals and tourists, the Kern River Brewing Co. offers a wide selection of their beers on tap - if you're a beer drinker it's a must! There are two distinct eateries here. The front part has your general pub fare - burgers, brats, tacos & fried stuff. The back (open during high season only) has food that's a little more elevated and is also slightly more laid back. But be prepared for a very busy scene on the weekends! There's also live music on some nights. Generally a cheery, lively, local vibe here with lots of folks chilling after a day of rafting, hiking, fishing, kayaking, camping - or one of the many other outdoor activities that the area has to offer!”

“Ewing's is a historic place with outstanding views of the Kern River Valley. A great spot for evening cocktails on the covered patio, or brunch on the weekends. Lunch and dinner are generally pretty good and this place keeps improving under new ownership. During high season (summer) on weekends it's best to check to see how busy they are since it can get quite crowded. Weekdays are generally pretty mellow. This is one of the nicer places in town, and a little pricier as well.”

Night Club
“The food here is amazing, with vegan and vegetarian options available. Bands frequent the Starlite Lounge and they offer karaoke on Saturday nights. Some have said the Starlite has the best food in town! Open only Thurs. - Sun. 4-9pm”

“A fun place to meet people, dance to live music and more. This saloon is a fun filled place to hang out and enjoy some night life. It also has a game room with tables and TV's to enjoy sporting events!”
